Not the best in the audio format

Solid enough book with solid enough info. Quite tedious to listen to, evidently that’s a thing now. This audiobook spends more time telling you what sections to reference to find out more, and what information is going to be covered in the following chapters, than it does actually giving us some tangible and implementable information. Props to the author for providing a PDF to follow along with, though this makes listening to ‘for further reading on XYZ topic, see chapter ABC’ at the end of every paragraph even less necessary than with no accompanying text. I’m a bit of a slow reader and I know very little about stocks, but I listened at 1.4x speed and even that was at times painstakingly slow. Don’t regret reading, just regret not asking more ppl for a reference to a useful stocks book

This is the book to read when starting to invest

Although it obviously lacks depth on certain topics, it provides just the depth you need to understand how to invest and what lies ahead for every new investor.
